In August of 2007 some local San Diego Amphi owners met
with a reporter and photographer from Coastal Living magazine.
Nearly a year later... the July/August 2008 issue finally put the
story and images to print. Worth waiting for since our Amphis
actually made the centerfold! :005:
And they actually got most of the facts and quotes right. :rolleyes:
 
Amphipoda: There was a lady at a camp next to my friends and she was reading coastal living!
and she said to her husben that she whould like to get one of these cars/boat, And out the corner of her eyes?? here i come with the same color car driving right into the water. As soon as i got back
to shore she came running over, She was so happy to see one in real life"" She said she will trade the magazine for a ride? So off we went, and she said that just made her weekend. So the rest of the day i just gave rides and everybody had a blast.

Ahoy Paul,

That tale warms my heart and has my gills all a flutter... :011:
Nice to hear Amphicars in print have such a positive
impact on the lives of land dwellers too.

Paul, there is an opportunity to do a follow up for Coastal Living Magazine through channel CW11 morning news in NYC. If interested click on my name and send me an email.

The shoot will possibly be in Manhattan and we can call it "Amphi goes to the big city? or "Miracle on 34th Street including the Hudson or East River".

Ron - I don't see how I could/would be involved in something like that. We are, however, counting on eventually becoming a large coastal city once California falls into the ocean. We already have a line of beachwear called "Yuma Beach"! - Paul

Yes amphicarowner I was talking to you regarding this shoot since I saw you live nearby. They want a amphi ASAP and the car would need to be 100% done. I have spoken to another owner close by who is willing to do this but it doesn't hurt to have a back up just in case.

I'm afraid mine won't make it in time as we're pulling the engine/tranny back out to repair some hull holes. We're not having much success either with the clutch after replacing everything. If we adjust it so that it doesn't clash when putting it in gear, we lose any clutch pull. If we adjust it to get pull, it clashes horribly. We're doing all this work in 120+ deg temps as the shop I use isn't air conditioned. Slow going in Yuma, my amigo. I'll have to pass. - Paul Shedal

Ahah! New York! *LOL* Now I get it! That ain't me... but I'll certainly be looking forward to anything involving Amphis on TV! Good luck with that! - Paul IN ARIZONA! 113 degrees today and the heat ain't that dry!

Ed- I think so too. That Andreas fault line that supposedly ends at Bombay Beach, CA is only 60 miles from Yuma "as the crow flies." I sold my Eliminator picklefork a few years ago (built in La Mesa there on Magnolia St.) due to the hazards of power boating on the Colorado. After watching those CALIFORNIA jet skis wiping out boat after boat through the years, I decided it was patently unsafe...but half of San Diego was out there every holiday (and at the Imperial Sand dunes during the winter) so if it happens during a prime recreation time, half of SoCal will already be here! *LOL* - Paul

113 degree Paul (AZ) & not quite done Paul (NY): there will be future opportunities and since you both appear interested IAOC will definitely keep you in mind.

Ina from NJ stepped up once again. Ina has went from basically learning how to operate her amphi, to completing the Delaware crossing shoot and now onto the big apple for the Channel 11 Coastal Living follow up shoot. Hopefully she will hold an autograph session at Celina. :dft012:

Only kidding of course however she has stepped up and helped the club out.

Val picked up a copy of Coastal Living and the pictures are crystal clear and the story is great. Highly recommended! Hopefully the TV morning news follow up that Ina will be doing for them in NYC will be just as good.
